Personal Services:

In addition to our Basic Services, you can choose from a variety of Personal Services according to individual needs and preferences. In this way, an individualized service plan is created with resident, family, and staff input. Because it focuses exclusively on your needs and preferences, you do not pay for services you do not require. The goal of your service plan is to promote your health and quality of life. The plan is reviewed on a regular basis and, of course, you can modify it at any time. Personal Services include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Ordering medications and supplies
  • Administering medications and treatments
  • Assisting with activities of daily living such as bathing, grooming, dressing and mobility
  • Assisting with special diets
  • Communicating with physicians concerning health issues
  • Coordinating services from home health agencies such as physical therapy and skilled nursing
  • Assisting diabetic residents, including monitoring blood glucose and administering insulin
  • Assisting memory-impaired residents by offering meal and activity reminders
  • Performing health monitoring such as measuring blood pressure
  • Caring for hospice residents
  • Assisting with personal laundry

Personal Services related to health needs are coordinated by our Registered Nurse.
